About Elevation Friesians, LLC
Elevation Friesians, LLC was, in the past, a breeder of purebred Friesian horses; a member in good standing with the Friesian Horse Association of North America (FHANA) and the royal studbook Dutch registry, De Koninklijke Vereniging Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek (FPS).
Previously, in Colorado, I had three FPS/FHANA Friesian mares, two more modern in Friesian type and one baroque mare, as well as their combined three foals. Because of devastating but transformational life shift, my sweet mares and two precious Miniature horses were re-homed and are more spoiled rotten than I could even spoil them!
I did not import my mares, they were all US bred horses. All breeding was done at the ranch, assuring the safety and health of the mare and foal. I raised one foal in 2007 and two in 2009. I strongly recommend avoiding the hassles and challenges of importing by buying direct from the breeder! Go meet your potential new equine partner – take it from me… finding the right match is paramount.
I, of course, was always very careful in my selection of the Friesian mares and stallions, as my goals were to preserve type and the betterment of the breed. I appreciate the rich history of Friesians, and always like to talk about this wonderful horse.
I am passionate about horses and love to share that passion with others. Elevation Friesians, LLC was established to realize my lifelong dream of raising Friesian horses. Though I no longer have my ranch, I highly recommend visiting a Friesian breeder near you so you too can experience the breathtaking beauty, wonderful temperament, and awe-inspiring elevated movement of the magnificent Friesian breed in person.
If you are interested in adding a Friesian to your life, I urge great caution – the breed is very fragile, they have many physical issues that stem from over a century of in-breeding. Pour your heart into researching the nuances and attributes of the breed before you buy – not to discourage you from stewarding a Friesian of your own, but to be prepared and educated on how to prevent or manage what may arise. As special as Friesians are, they are also fraught with health challenges. Regardless, their gentle, kind, loving and loyal hearts will always win over ours.
